ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Thursday returned a plea from Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) against delimitations from the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), ARY NEWS reported.
The registrar of the apex court returned the PTI plea after raising objections that the petitioner has not approached concerned forum for redressal of the issue.
The petition was directly filed in the Supreme Court despite having an opportunity to raise the matter at concerned forum, the registrar said and further added that the petition also did not carry concerned certificates.
